Need Cake Selection Help

I have been reading and reading to try to find the answers to my questions but I'm running out of time. We leave in 7 days and I need to order my cake. Hopefully, someone can help me so that I can stop drooling over cakes and get to packing!!

I would like to order a cake for my husband's birthday. I would like to do the mickey head because I think is it so "Disney" and kinda masculine. He is not a big chocolate fan but likes strawberry. Has anyone had any luck getting them to make it with a different mousse?

Next dilemma, his birthday is the night we are going to the Luau. Would you have the cake sent to the Luau or my other option is Whispering Canyon the night before?? I can call and get my answer to the first question if I could only decide on the second.

If anyone has any good advice, please help!!
Thanks.

I need a cake for 1/9 and was worried about this exact thing! When would you order if you were me? It's for ds 2nd bday at chef mickeys. I emailed them thus week but did not hear back. They are probably ignoring me thinking I'm crazy for inquiring so early. I mostly wanted to see if they could go a cake like a photo I sent them.

Just had our cake delivered to BLT from CR Bakery on 10/10. Quoted price was $68, transport fee was $3, auto grat of 18% was added (assuming room service, but could also have been because we are a party of 8 I suppose), as was some tax ... Total charge was $80. The cake was delivered boxed on a tray with a plastic cutter/server and real plates/forks for the 8 of us. Cake was delicious and just what we expected, will post a photo when we get home.

I think it depends on the appetites involved. It was enough for 4 on my birthday trip - my mom, myself, and my girls (then 3 & 10). After a big meal a little slice of cake was really all we wanted.

That's what I was wondering. We're on the dining plan so we'll also be getting dessert as well as the cake. I think I'll ask for a quote for both a two tier mini and a 6" cake.

Here are pics of the cakes we got on our trip from 10/1-10/8..

The first was an anniversary cake for my IL's. They had orange and yellow roses on their wedding cake, so we asked for that and a mickey/minnie white chocolate topper w/gold accents. We left the rest of the decorating to the chefs. We chose an 8" chocolate cake with the peanut butter cup mousse filling. It had chocolate buttercream frosting adhering the fondant to the cake. I don't remember the exact bill offhand, but it was about $150 including gratuity.

ETA: We had it delivered to Liberty Tree Tavern, so it was the work the Contemporary bakery. All communication was through the MK cake email address though.



The second is a mini cake that DH surprised me with at BOG. It was also a chocolate cake, but with the Bailey's filling. It was covered with white buttercream. SOO good. I would order that combo again in a heartbeat! ETA: This was delivered to BOG. I believe DH also organized this through the MK cake e-mail.

Toy Story Cake

Hi, I wanted to share the Toy Story cake that we had made for our daughter. It was delivered to Be Our Guest and made by the Contemporary Bakery.

Size: 8in (wanted 6, but they said it had to be the bigger size)
Cost: $107



I had asked for vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and sliced strawberries and frosted with vanilla buttercream, but on a follow up email from MK cakes I was asked if I liked vanilla or chocolate. I thought this was maybe for the writing or something similar and said vanilla. What we got was vanilla cake with some type of vanilla custard or pudding inside. I was pretty disappointed as this was clearly not want we wanted. The flavor was just ok. None of us wanted more than one small piece.

lucybalue, The Toy Story cake is very cute. It's a bummer it didn't taste that good and you didn't get the flavors you originally asked for...

I heard back from Heather at the CR bakery! So, less than a week. She said I can order now for our January trip. Quoted $110 for a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed 10 inch cake covered in fondant with Clubhouse themed decorations around the cake and a 2d image of Mickey and Donald on top backed by white chocolate. Have to call the hotline to order.

You can get a quote through email but the actual order must be called in

Good to know...thank you!!! I did ask for a quote in my email so I just resent it to confirm they received it. If I don't hear anything soon, I will call. Thanks!

Strawberry mousse is one of the options available at most bakeries, but getting anything besides chocolate or vanilla from the Grand Floridian bakery (which makes cakes for the Poly & the luau) is like pulling teeth.

I would skip the luau because A)everyone will be too distracted by the show to appropriately oooh and aahhh, B) the GF bakery is one of the most difficult to work with. If you have it at Whispering Canyon you'll be working with the friendly folks of Wilderness Lodge's cake hotline or (depending how elaborate your idea is) those at Contemporary Private Dining. Much easier!

If you're staying on property, the third option is to have the cake delivered to your room on the night of the birthday.
